Dimetallic aluminium(salen) complexes show exceptionally high catalytic activity for the synthesis of cyclic carbonates from terminal epoxides at ambient temperature and pressure. The process has the potential to contribute towards decreasing atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. © Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2007.
